Class Year

Maclellan/Rymer, Lawrence

Writing, music, fixing electronics


Favorite place on campus
Probably my room—it’s kind of my place to escape and rest.


Why did you choose Covenant?
I chose Covenant because it was a place that made me feel encouraged and challenged in both academics and my walk with Christ.


How is Covenant unique?
Covenant offers a diverse and comprehensive college experience that is firmly grounded in Christian fellowship and the Bible. It will challenge you in order to build up your faith, and that’s something very special.


What has been your favorite experience at Covenant?
I really loved being an orientation team leader this past year; it was great to get to know new students and see the excitement that I felt when I first got here.


What is your favorite class so far?
Bioethics with Dr. Davis and Dr. Madueme


What made that class your favorite?
We had to face difficult, sometimes impossible ethical questions that have to be answered every day. It really gave me a better understanding and appreciation of Christian ethics and how we can apply our faith to service.


What are some things you enjoy about your major(s)?
I am constantly given new things to read and to write about. My literary repertoire is always being expanded.


What person at Covenant has had the greatest impact on you, and why?
Dr. Barham has been inspirational during my time at Covenant—not only does he have an incredible understanding of the English language, he always takes time to address me in the halls and to pause and see how I’m doing. He has been very encouraging.


What’s your favorite part of the day at Covenant?
I really enjoy the evenings; I feel like the student body really comes alive at night and that’s when the best conversations and adventures happen.


What are your post-graduation plans?
I’m not entirely certain about what I’ll do after graduation. I’d love to pursue something musical, whether that means working for a church or trying to do something on my own. I’d love to stay in Chattanooga.


How is Covenant equipping you for the future?
Covenant makes me realize how much I have yet to learn. It is teaching me to be humble and to trust in Christ because I can’t make it on my own. It is grounding me in saving grace and I am learning how to serve others instead of serving myself.
